Dear Matthieu Patou!

I find your plan (extracting the containers from a Windows Server 
deployment) okay since also all previous containers in SAMBA 4 have been 
added in the same way. Additionally, you have now also the possibility 
to look at the MSPP/WSPP documentation from Microsoft.
We at the moment wait until the schema update for SAMBA 4 is completed 
to have the whole Microsoft AD schema up and running. Then we'll have a 
look at adding containers, OU's etc. to the DIT at provisioning. In the 
meantime you could give it a try and start with coding it (maybe it 
needs only the actual SAMBA 4 schema classes). I would enhance 
"provision_configuration.ldif". Afterwards, I would put the completed 
work in Bugzilla, so it doesn't get lost.
